Little Passports is a monthly subscription package which delivers adventure right to your door. Over the next few months we will be trying out the Early Explorers subscription, for children aged 3-5, which we have kindly been gifted in return for an honest review.
We are also taking part in the Little Passports Affiliate programme, so if you click on any of the links in this post or on the advert on the sidebar, and go on to purchase a subscription, we will receive a small commission.
We received the introductory package and the second instalment (the Landmarks Pack) before Christmas, but with all the festivities we decided to wait until after the holidays so we could sit down and go through the packs together. It was quite well timed as we gave Izzy a globe for her 5th birthday at the start of January, so she was able to use that alongside the Little Passports pack.
Izzy really likes getting post, so straight away to was excited to receive the subscription in the mail. The Welcome Pack includes a suitcase to store all the goodies that you receive each month, an activity passport, a world map, stickers, a postcard and a luggage tag. Each month a package arrives containing an activity passport, luggage tag, stickers, trading cards, a postcard and souvenirs.
Everything is related to a different theme, so this month it was landmarks and next month is music of the world. We went through the activities together to learn about different landmarks, matching them to their countries, finding out some facts, and placing the plastic souvenirs of the Taj Mahal, Sphinx, Eiffel Tower, Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Great Wall of China on the map of the world. Some of the countries and places mentioned in the activity books are places that her Daddy and I have been to, so I was able to get out the photo books and show her pictures from our honeymoon when we visited Barcelona and Rome.
Izzy has started showing a real interest in the world – she’s been asking a lot of questions about different countries, and about the Earth, so she was really interested in this. The activities were all fairly straightforward, so I did wonder if she would have maybe got more benefit from the World Edition instead, but I like that the information is all bite-size and not too overwhelming. It’s a nice introduction to geography and gives children a taste of different countries and cultures. There are also extra activities and facts sent by email each month, which also encourages children to use technology to find out more.
Little Passports offer 3 different packages – the Early Explorers for children aged 3-5, World Edition for 6-12 year olds and the USA Edition. Find out more here: Give the gift of Adventure!
